App developers also suffer from duopoly in the smartphone market

Deepfakes: Android app puts your face on every GIF meme

There are only two smartphone operating systems in the world that are currently pre-installed on the smartphones sold. Application developers suffer from this.

There are only two smartphone operating systems in the world that are currently pre-installed on the smartphones sold. Application developers suffer from this. But of course there are also developers who benefit from this development on the market. Basically, there is the problem that app developers are also struggling for search results in Google Play Store. Who is above wins, who is below can even lose their existence. It’s no different with us, the search engine market is similar.

When asked, Google confirmed that several changes had recently been imported to the Google Play Store. Some developers benefit from this, while others brutally fail. In principle, however, Google responds to accusations that it would only prefer large developers. The quality should determine the recommendations of the application, not the size of a developer.

Within a day your Android app download numbers brutally collapse, this fate is currently shared by many smaller developer teams. The reason is said update, which changed the algorithms. Some developers have gone off various recommendations with their offers, fewer people pay attention to the offers. In the end there are fewer downloads, fewer users and therefore less income.

Not everyone can benefit

For my part, I am clearly saying that Google’s algorithms are still not good enough. Automatic recognition of the quality of content or applications is definitely not working incorrectly. We have struggled with criteria like this for years, as have other fellow editors. With applications, there is a similar behavior of Google services. But not everyone can benefit in the long run, that should be clear to those affected. [via]
